Yesterday at my consult for IVF #2, they told me that during stiming and after ER/ET until my beta, that I really need to avoid lifting, turning, twisting. Including lifting my 13 month old....This would be about 4 weeks total! I am really concerned about this....I stay home with her, so I'm the only one here the majority of the day that can lift her in and out of her crib for naps and also lift her if she falls down, into her highchair/carseat, etc. She is walking now, so that helps but.....
How strict do I need to be about this? I know the concerns are that the ovaries could turn and twist (bad), but how likely is this to happen if I lift my 19 lb. daughter?
Also, how did you handle the bedrest with your toddler? I am trying to find some help, but DH can't take off too many days of work and my mom works too. Hoping it falls on a weekend, so one of them can help. But trying to get my MIL to come to help too.
